Default Kyosho MP10T Thread

Well here it is..
Nice to see another new Truggy, but this body is just weird / ugly. Looks like a melted Tekno ET body grafted to an MP10 buggy body.

Remember when the losi 8t forward cab body came out and everyone said it was ugly... it only took a few months for everyone to turn out loving it. This body I think will take a lot longer to start liking. Cause itís ugly.

it is just a body. Can totally be replaced.

A better paint scheme will improve that a lot. Plus I think that narrow nose and overall shape may make it a bit more durable. Unless Kyosho is still using paper thin Lexan.

If itís anything like the MP10 kit body, itíll be way too thin...I think itís 0.8mm.

Are they going to use tiny 5x11x4 diff pinion bearings in it like the MP9 / MP10?

Poor choice for 1/8 buggy, terrible choice for the extra stress (and weaker, smaller tooth count pinion) on truggy.

kyosho bearings arnt you're typical xray or what ever other re-brand. 5x11 is fine if setup properly and replaced when worn... the diff case is WAY more important

Nah, they're just bearings (check name and join date - have run plenty of Kyosho since 2003 - metal shielded bearings roll faster and contaminate easier, hardly rocket science) and 5x11 is miniscule.

Happens much faster when bearings are undersized.
Less wrench time = more drive time.

Seems to work ok for Mugen and maybe X-ray?

it works for quite a few brands. sometimes big bearings are an excuse for bad quality plastic gearbox's

i've owned and raced with kyosho buggys over the last 13 years and i dont think i've ever seen a pinion bearing fail

uDi_MP7.5, how about we discuss xrays pinion bearing systems over the years? 3 big bearings used to fail all the time, they changed to smaller and not so many issues
actually kyosho proved this with the original truggy/ST-RR, the case was soft and warped with the heat of spiral geears, changed to a harder plastic and straight cut evo gears and fixed itself...

I doubt the bearings will be a failure point. But it is convenient to use more of the same size bearings.
